Vintage 1974 Fender Jazz Bass. 100% Original w/ Original Hard Shell Case. Awesome vintage Fender Jazz Bass made in Fullerton, CA, USA in 1974.
Original natural finish (over ash wood with beautiful grain), white 3-ply pickguard and bound maple neck with pearl blocks. Nothing has been changed or modified on this instrument - It's 100% original down to the last screw and has the original tail logo case. It has some finish wear, dings and scratches here and there, but overall very very nice condition for being 45 years old! The original pickups are strong and loud, and the bass sounds incredible, ranging from fat, smooth vintage tone...No issues, no cracks, no mods, no repairs. The neck feels incredible and the action is nice and low with fantastic playability all across the board. No dead or buzzy notes anywhere. Neck is straight, truss rod works good.
The feel and tone of this bass are as good as it gets in my opinion - Its a professional quality vintage instrument in every regard. The frets are all original with lots of life left. This neck one of the last 4-bolt Jazz basses to leave the factory in the 70s (right before Fender made the change to the less desirable 3-bolt necks)!
Neck Stamp: Not visible - very typical for this era, but 4-bolt pearl block necks were only made in 1974 (and very early 1975). Pot Codes: All 3 pots read 137- 7405 (5th week of 1974). You can still make out that the last digits on the bridge p/u are 74 (which indicates the year). Both pickups have their original windings.
Solder Joints: All original and intact. Weight: Very light for the mid 70s at 9.5 lbs.
The original case is in good condition, but shows some typical wear from use. The case logo is still intact.Please check out my other listings for more cool Fender stuff!
